A synthetic strategy based on a ring expansion reaction to introduce eight-membered rings into polycyclic aromatic frameworks is reported. The octagon-embedded hexabenzocoronene synthesized with this strategy features a saddle-shaped polycyclic framework as revealed by the single crystal X-ray crystallography.

Key words: eight-membered ring, polycyclic arenes, ring expansion
